On-The-Go Families Invited to Share Photos in the Smucker’s® Uncrustables® Unstoppable Family Photo Contest for the Chance to Win a $15,000 Unstoppable Family Adventure
Unstoppable families play big and dream big. For the second year in a row, the makers of Uncrustables® – the perfectly portable, thaw-and-serve crustless peanut butter and jelly sandwiches – have teamed up with Olympic gold medal figure skater, busy mom and best-selling children’s book author, Kristi Yamaguchi. Together they are proud to announce the launch of the Smucker’s® Uncrustables® Unstoppable Family Photo Contest for the chance to win a $15,000 check toward an unstoppable family adventure and a year’s supply of Uncrustables sandwiches.
From now through November 1, 2012, parents can go to www.uncrustables.com to submit a photo showing where their families enjoy Smucker’s Uncrustables sandwiches in their unstoppable family adventures with a brief caption. Ten finalist entries will be posted on the site in January 2013 for a nationwide online vote for a chance to win the grand prize. Visit www.uncrustables.com for Official Rules and complete details.
“I’m thrilled to partner with the Smucker’s Uncrustables brand again,” said Kristi Yamaguchi. “As my girls grow, so do their lists of extracurricular activities, so I strive to instill in them the same unstoppable mantra I grew up with – no dream is too big.”
That drive helped Kristi fulfill her childhood dream of competing in the Olympics, and she hopes to empower even more children to reach their dreams through education and inspiration with her Always Dream® Foundation. Smucker’s Uncrustables sandwiches will also support The Foundation by donating a dollar for every new Facebook Like and Twitter Follower, now through November 15, 2012, up to a total donation of $30,000.
Founded in 1996, The Foundation is committed to the belief that early childhood literacy is the cornerstone of all academic and, in fact, life success. The Foundation has set their sights on improving access by children of low-income families to books and technology. Their newest initiative, “Always Reading”, is launching in Fall 2012 and will integrate interactive e-tablets with proven literacy programs in kindergarten classrooms.
“We are proud to be partnering with Kristi to help unstoppable families create more memorable moments together,” said Maribeth Badertscher, Vice President, Corporate Communications, The J.M. Smucker Company. “We know that moms and dads trust Uncrustables sandwiches to provide their families with the convenience and portability to keep up with their busy days.”
Uncrustables sandwiches are available in three new flavors and varieties:
- New Peanut Butter and Raspberry Spread Sandwich on Whole Wheat Bread
- New Reduced Sugar Peanut Butter and Grape Spread Sandwich on Whole Wheat Bread
